Christie's Showcase Shat tered and Contents Stolon He Cine to ths Thieves. A very clever thief perpetrated a robbery on Miss E. P. Christie, the well known Chapel street milliner, early Tuesday even ing. Miss Christie's millinery rooms are over Monson -& Carpenter's store, and she has a showcase filled with sample stock exhibited at the foot of the stairway on the . Chapel street walk. It has been the custom of hired colored man to cany the case upstairs nightly and deposit it at the door of Miss Christie's room in the hallway, and in the morning carry it back to the walk again, Tuesday night when the colored man looked for the case to bring np stairs it couldn't be found.' Early yesterday morning it was found in the rear of the building, the glass in the ease shattered and the contents, consist ing bf bonnets, feathers, plumes and velvets, gone. It appears that the thief carried the oase to the rear of the building before the wonted time for the colored man to make his appearance, and rifled it of its contents, which were valued at f zo. Railroad Matters. The time-honored project of the New York and Boston "Inland" railroad, which was to cross the Connecticut just below Middletowa and run straight across hill and valley to ward Boston, has received a fresh impetus from the recent stir in railroad matters. civil engineer has recently gone ever the route staked some years ago through Colum bia and adjoining towns, and surveyors are reported at work in the neighborhood. Greenwioh will ask from the legislature a charter for a little railroad to transport pas sengers and merchandise from the depot and wharf to the center of the town. The directors of the Connecticut Western railroad have elected the old board of officers with the addition of Thomas Cornell, of Bondout, as vice president. A hitch has occurred in the Danbury and Bethel horse railroad scheme. It is claimed that the $60,000 of bonds were illegally is sued, and there appears to be foundation for the claim in the fact that the company will ask the legislature to validate the issue to the amount of $30,000. Some Danburians are so mnch dissatisfied with ths whole af fair that thev will ask a repeal of the char ter, and that a new company be chartered, composed of residents of the town.

Mr. John Laighton, who died in Norwich, Conn., was for some time in his earlier life a resident of this city and a pupil of Jones & Tenny, portrait painters on Chapel street, Later he opened a studio here and was very successful as an artist in oil portraiture. He was a well known member of Hiram lodge of Free Masons in this city, having joined in 1868. Some twelve years ago he removed to Norwich and associated himself with his brother, William S Laighton, a former pho tographic operator for M. Moulthrop of this city, in the photographio and portrait busi ness, where they have been eminently suc cessful, building up a large trade. Mr. Laighton was of Quaker parentage, from whom he inherited the oandor and sterling honesty which characterise that sect. As a uan he was an honor to his parents and up right and straightforward in all his dealings with his fel ow men. -Although hs never aeld any official position in the Masonic fra ternity be was well known by bis brethren s a firm adherent to the tenets of the order. supporting them by his word and example on every occasion. This makes the sixth member Hiram lodge has lost by death this year, viz., Ueorge Augur, John . - btoer, Dexter C Wright, Frank U. Bacon, .Louis r. Morehouse and John Laighton. William Lawler. William Lawler, a well known Waterbury business man died yesterday at his residence. He had been suffering from a complication of diseases for some time.

The Taylor-fllnllory" anlt XHaenaoed. Before Judge Shipman yesterday in Hart ford was argued a demurrer to the bill of complaint recently brought in the United States Circuit oonrt by James S. Taylor,' of Danbury, against E. A. Mallory & Sons, of the same town. The suit was to restrain de fendants from - using" certain machinery for sizing hats, which machinery is alleged to have been secured by plaintiffs patents. The complaint was filed October 13th, 1886. On December 6th defendants filed their" de murrer to the bill, stating that there were six separate and distinct matters and causes al leged. For infringement of letters patent No. 263,075 for the hat -Boalding and felting machine; for infringement of letters patent No. 263,076 for machinery for felting hats; for infringement of letters patent No. 278, 843 for hat scalding and felting machine; for infringement of letters patent No. 280, 095 for hat Bizing or felting machine; for in fringement of letters patent No. 297,471 for method and machine for scalding and felting hat bodies. It also stated that these matters were so different in their nature that they could not properly be joined in one suit. After a snort argument Dy counsel Judge Shipman ordered the complaint dismissed with costs, though allowing plaintiff to bring another suit on any of the letters patent and providing that defendants shall accept service of subpoena and the bill in such new suit if brought. The original bill of complaint comprises the customary blank forms in patent cases, and the blanks are filled in the same hand writing as the signature of the plaintiff. The demurrer was filed December 6, and on the 7th Lawyer MoHahon, of New Milford, en tered an appearance for plaintiff. It is said that Mr. Taylor prepared his own case and wan ted no attorney until he found the bill attacked for multifariousness. In bringing suits in patent cases Mr. Taylor will probably eome to the belief that in the end it is eco nomical to have complaints properly drawn, as he is now mulcted in costs on the present ease. -Jut uovernor wgersuu, ox .. wis was one of the counsel m this case. - .

The Women's Christian Temperance Union to Petition the Board of Police Commissioners Per a Matron A Providence Officials' Opinion. The Women's Christian Temperance Union of this city will soon present a peti tion to the Board of Police Commissioners praying for the appointment of a matron to the police office. The Bev. John O. Collins, who is greatly interested in the matter, yes terday received a letter from Mrs. JT. K. Bar ney, who recently visited, this oity. , In her letter she gave the opinion of Chief of Police Childs of Providence, Mrs. : Barney's home, regarding the advisability of having motions in police offices. Mr. Childs' experience in the care of pris oners in the Providence station where there is a matron located is related to Mrs. Barney as follows: "All female prisoners received at this station are immediately placed under the care of the matron, who has charge of the prisoners' dock, where they await their arraignment or trial before the police and justice courts, and continues her supervision until they are discharged from custody or taken away to be committed to the institu tions in Cranston. "She also searches all of the female prison ers before commitment to the cells, many of whom are charged with- larceny and are suspected of having stolen properly in their possession. In addition to the large number of prisoners brought to the central station many Insane persons -of both sexes are detained for safe keeping to await transpor tation to hospitals both in and out of the State. - The fitness of having a matron for females who are bereft of reason and entirely regardless of all the ordinary proprieties of life is obvious to every mind. I am free to state that, in my opinion, the system is for many reasons a great improvement on our previous methods of doing such business. It also relieves onr officers from the execution of many unpleasant and delicate duties, the necessity or which has not generally been understood and for the performance of which we nave sometimes been severely criticised."

He expressed his great pleasure at the conveniences afforded by the Capitol in the suites of rooms and the beauty of the design and excellence of finish. The lower floor he spoke exceedingly complimentary of. Says the Times: One of the employes in the building after he found out who the colonel was said, as he saw him enter the carriage: "The time will come before long when he'll find out whether there's a devil in hell or not. When he meets him he'll step up and cordially shake hands with him." " ISERIDEN'S POULTRY SHOW.
